As part of my 30 Day Sugar Detox, eliminating all sweeteners, whole, refined and artificial, from all drinks is required. And forget the glass of wine at night. I’ll be going without for these 30 days.
Luckily, this is one area I already have covered! While I do like to indulge in a good latte every once in a while, I’ve made a conscious effort not to drink my calories.
That said, I do like a little flavor to my drinks. And I’m finding that interesting drink flavors can divert my attention away from wanting to eat.
My strategy for avoiding sugary drinks is to make up both a flavored water and an herbal tea recipe in the morning. This has been one of my favorite ways to make sure the whole family is staying hydrated with sugar-free drinks.
Here are my family’s favorite flavored water recipes:

We also love herbal teas. Here are my favorite flavors, as well as my foolproof method for brewing a perfect pitcher:
